Pasteurized Milk

Ephesians 4:11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;

I believe that the role of the pastor and teacher within the church is invaluable. God holds them to a higher accountability than parishioners. They are after all responsible for bringing the pure Word.

Psalm 12:6 The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

Yesterday we dealt with mother’s milk and today I would like to speak to Pastorized Milk. (pun intended)

Pasteurization is a cleansing process wherein bacteria are killed. The intent is to take milk from cattle and prepare it for public consumption. Its source is not from the mother and does not have the same antibodies and cannot therefore provide the same natural protection. It is good for growth and the essence of antibodies has already been established within the reborn and need not be repeated.

In the natural there are many sources of pasteurized milk. In the spiritual there are many sources of pastorized milk. In the natural there is a use by date, it is guaranteed fit for use for only a specific period. Pastorized milk has no use by date. Sermons can be reused or reread over and over again with no fear of contamination.

Pasteurized milk comes in whole milk, 5%, 2% and skim milk. You buy what you like or need according to your physical needs. Pastorized milk has to be delivered to all as a blend, each sermon containing elements of wholeness in which the hearer will receive it all but only digest according to personal growth, as the body needs. This is not an easy matter for a pastor or teacher to make sure the milk contains the right blend so that no one is lacking what is needed.

These are just some ideas about pastor’s milk. Can you see anything else? Care to share?

  1. WOW….this is great! I Iook forward to learning more about “pastor’s milk”. All my life I was raised and lived under “multiple leadership, guided by the Holy Spirit” until 2 years ago when distance no longer made it possible because of age. It has been challenging to me at times, but I’m an eager learner, and am beginning to see the burden placed on the shoulders of our Pastor Shawn.
    This brings me to the point of “pasteurization” and “pastorization”. The pasteurization process of cleansing milk is done with heat…..just the right amount and the right length of time. I see this beautiful comparison with the “pastorization” processes in our Pastor’s life. God put him through the trials in life to purify and flavour his ministry. The Spirit of God then uses this “pastorized” milk to feed His people. Thank you, dear brother, for opening this topic up….I am looking forward to learning more. The Spirit of God, working through Godly men, is such a great teacher.
